What are some easy to install players for playing wmv and other 'windows' media files on Linux.
I am using Suse Linux 9.

Thanks

CodeWeavers Crossover Office is a great product; it's based on Wine, with special install/config tools and lots of tweaks and fixes. It lets you run all sorts of Windows software -- including Windows Media Player.

Thanks Ernest.
But I am looking for something free at the moment. I dont use any other windows software, but trying to find something I can use to view occasional videos clips in wmv format.
I think I will try mplayer when I get a chance.

cheers
Sonny
